Report Tenancy Fraud

How to report housing fraud

We need your help to report housing fraud because you see what's going on in your neighbourhood such as:

  • you might know that somebody has another home we don't know about or has given false information in their housing or homeless application.
  • you might be suspicious because the tenants of a property keep changing or you have seen someone collecting rent.
  • you might suspect that the property is not being occupied.

Use our online form to report tenancy fraud 

Any information received will be kept in the strictest confidence and you do not have to supply your name and address.
